The night before we left for California, we headed over to the Neufangs to carve some pumpkins and get our annual dose of Halloween movies (a la Charlie Brown style).
I had seen lots of pumpkins in magazines this year with their skins shaved/etched. So Jas and I decided to go non-traditional and etch our pumpkin instead of carve it. Let's just say it wasn't an easy process, but the end result wasn't bad. Not exactly as great as I had envisioned, but hey, it worked nonetheless. Success!
(Not the greatest pics--but I present to you pumpkin pics):
Marianne and Nate decided to carve their punkins. They went detailed! M-anne opted for a witch dropping a salamander into boiling water, and Nate, well, he went with Spongebob. (side note: M and N are avid Spongebob watchers)
Pretty impressive, huh? It was fun! Next year we'll just have to have a skype pumpkin-carving date :)
